Victoria Smith

Lecturer in Nursing


Summary

I am a former Graduate from Sheffield Hallam University and returned to work here after gaining extensive experience as a Surgical Nurse within the Adult care service at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals. I deliver teaching on the Nursing studies courses. I also work to develop innovative technology enhanced learning experiences for students, including online and clinical skills on our campus.

I have supported several Clinical Support Workers apply for Nursing Associate training programme and am keen to support both students and Healthcare professionals with career progression. I also have an interest in the support of first-generation University students and how best to support their development. This is a topic I hope to study further.



About

I have been an Adult Nurse for twelve years, have experience in acute and rehabilitative settings holding a keen interest in Trauma and Orthopaedics, student support and clinical teaching. Working as both a Nurse and Clinical Educator in Musculoskeletal services at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals Foundation Trust I was appointed as a full-time Lecturer at Sheffield Hallam University in January 2020. I love teaching and am privileged to work with students throughout their development to become part of this amazing profession. I am a proud and passionate Nurse and became a lecturer to spread the word of this wonderful career; to inspire the future generation of nurses. I thoroughly enjoy both the teaching and discussions my role allows me to have with the students. Seeing the students gain confidence and develop is extremely rewarding to me. I am keen to promote and develop clinical skills training with a view to improve outcomes and safety for individuals as well as encourage my students to further their development. My role involves supporting students as their Academic Advisor, facilitating learning through teaching and marking assessments. I also support the recruitment process of students to both BSc and MSc Nursing cohorts. 

My specialist areas of interest are learning material innovation, recruitment within the Nursing and Midwifery department, clinical skills training, patient assessment and managing care, and student support and development.


Teaching

As a newly appointed Module Lead for the Level 6 Leading and Coordinating Person Centred Care module on the nursing studies course; I am keen to create a training programme that upholds the new curriculum and excites our students; ensuring the high quality training at undergraduate level. I teach all aspects of undergraduate nursing; however, I have a particular interest in acute illness and clinical skills training for the care of adults often supporting Resuscitation and the Moving and Handling teams. I have additional skills and facilitate the development of these in relation to wound care, venepuncture and cannulation having taught these to Health Care Professionals within the Sheffield Trust for several years. Furthermore, my background in Musculoskeletal care has given me a vast knowledge base for supportive rehabilitation in relation to Moving and Handling techniques.
